Dave: Many atheists will say, sarcastically, that they don’t believe in a magic fairy
in the sky who gives them warm cuddly feelings anymore.
Jeff: Now, with all due respect to my atheist friends, I know you’re just trying to
point out that believing in invisible creatures is… odd.
Dave: And many religions snub real world facts – they say things like, “The world is
an illusion” or “Just believe and you’ll see…”
Jeff: If that’s all there was, we’d probably be with you Atheists.
Dave: But, what if there was a religion that said, “Don’t base your belief on
feelings. Base it on the facts.”
Jeff: Here’s what is important – that’s exactly what Christianity does.
Dave: We say there is one massive fact: Jesus Christ rose from the dead.
Jeff: Notice, it’s an historical event, not a mystical belief. We can examine
testimony, evidence and come to conclusions based on that evidence.
Dave: And if a guy really did predict he would rise from the dead, and did it – that
would make a compelling case.
